Minnesota’s duo of first-overall picks, Andrew Wiggins and Karl-Anthony Towns paced the Timberwolves with 23 and 26 points, respectively. Towns added eight rebounds and Wiggins chipped in two assists and two steals. Their big games were unfortunately not enough to carry Minnesota against the Oklahoma City Thunder, 100-112.
While the scoring was good, the lack of treys and defensive stats from both young cubs were a bit of a disappointment. Towns has been slowly rounding out into form over the last few games, so he should do better in the next one. Wiggins has been a scoring threat all of 2016-17, but his lack of stat diversity has capped his ceiling in fantasy.
